Went to a party years ago and this was served. I have not seen this recipe through the years so I thought I would post it for others to have and enjoy. So easy and so delicious! When you make it you wish there will be leftovers (I'm a glutton for this one!) but usually none. Serve any time of the year, but summer seems to suit it the best. To describe the cake it is yellow cake topped with a cream cheese vanilla pudding, then pineapple (and bits of cherry for color) and crowned with cool whip. Added colorful pineapple and cherries for fun on the top to make it eye pleasing.
